GPs are not obliged to provide their patients with sick certification for illnesses of seven days or less. Your employer should have a supply of self certification forms (SC1/SC2), which you should complete on return to work. If your employer requests a medical certificate for less than seven days illness this would require an appointment with a GP and would incur a private fee. These fees are payable at the time of consultation but might be reimbursed by your employer.
The practice charges for other non-NHS services including fitness to travel and fitness to exercise certification. A fee will also be charged for any investigations or tests required in order to provide such certificates.
Following advice from the BMA and LMC, the doctors at this practice will no longer provide reports to the Police in respect of fitness to hold a Firearms Certificate.
